Lightroom: Seeking general printer advice and printing tips

My HP printer has died and I'm looking for a new printer. Just as well as I could never seem to make a decent print, with the colors always being wrong.

I have many questions:
1) What is a good, reasonably priced, printer to use with Lightroom? I mostly (99% of the time) make 4x6 borderless prints. Would like the capability to print on 8.5 x 11 or maybe higher on those rare occasions.
2) Should I use color profiles? If so, what printers support them? (My HP did not, as far as I know). Again, the colors were always off (usually blue tint).
3) What paper should I use?
4) What settings in Lightroom should I use? - Sharpen, let driver manage colors, darken/lighten, etc.

Any help or input would be appreciated. I've always been extremely frustrated with printing in Lightroom.
